. >> thank you. >>> good afternoon, my name is ari feingold, and i'm a curator for [speaker not understood], so i'm responsible for bringing local restaurants in the park and helping them transfer their operation into a fending operation in the park. i've been doing it for three years as a curator but was involved as a vendor before that. so, i've been with the festival since it started. i do consider it a real privilege to work with such a diverse group of local restaurants and to really sort of celebrate the incredible culinary culture in our city. a conversation started a few speakers ago about the local factor of the festival. i just want to say typically my strategy for acquiring new vendors is to start in the neighborhood around the park and work my way out. so, alan had mentioned, you know, pacific [speaker not understood], new ganges, [speaker not understood], there's definitely some other ones, but this year we had the pizza place, noriega, which is more in the neighborhood of 25th that we're talking about before. one of the things i do every year is invite people for the followin
to that as well as [speaker not understood] feingold who oversees the local restaurants and the restaurant just down the street. >> i appreciate that and that commitment. one of the things i do want to be clear about, the area that i'm really concerned about is the area right on irving street closest to the impacting area where the 25th avenue entrance is. i don't believe there are many businesses there that participate in the festival. and i'm not saying that they have to be. but i really think they ought to have a fair shot. i think you really ought to make the effort to incorporate as much of our local merchants as possible. pacific catch is in the sunset, but it's in the inner sunset, not the outer sunset, the area that tends to be forgotten when it comes to the benefits and really making sure that you do the out reach. so, i would definitely encourage you to do that. >> absolutely. and if you have a contact for the merchant association, if you could pass it along, that would be fantastic. >> great. and then to nick, then, just to follow-up on final questions. just remind me again in terms

. circumventing the speaker john boehner. mccain/feingold was kick started by this discharge position. petitions passed in the house twice before failing in the senate. gun legislation has also been passed thanks to discharge petitions. pelosi found a way to get republicans on the record whether they like it or not. by next week, they will have to take a stand on tax cuts for the middle class. it's no wonder republicans are freaking out. >> this is not a game. we're not interested in playing rope-a-dope. we're interested in trying to solve the problem for the american people so that we don't see taxes go up on anybody, so we can engage in tax reform and get this economy going again. pier not playing a game. we're being serious. that offer yesterday was simply not serious. >> cantor was speaking about the deal presented to republican leaders yesterday by treasury secretary tim geithner. today the white house released details about that deal. in spite of republican claims of $400 billion in cuts, the deal proposed $600 billion in cuts. $350 billion in medicare savings and another $250 billion in a
and it hasn't worked for ten years when mccain feingold was put on the floor of the house by virtue of the fact that they had a discharge position. it has been tried hundreds of times in the past 100 years. it very seldom works. you can see now, democrats trying everything nay can do. putting on public pressure like the president did yesterday in a campaign-style event outside philadelphia and playing the inside game with these procedural tactics on capitol hill. bottom line, they're going to have to get together, john boehner and president obama and work this out together. that's the only way, craig. >> mike viqueira i love us when y you. >>> republicans want specific cuts laid out in exchange for tax increases. today's "wall street journal" features an interview with mitch mcconnell providing some fresh clearly on a plan that he would like to see emerge telling the paper that he'd agree to hire medicare premiums for the wealthy and increase in the medicare eligibility age and slowing costs of living increases for social security. let's dig in now with molly ball, national politica
. citizens united is the case were just a few years earlier, george w. bush had signed the mccain-feingold law. in two years earlier -- within two, four years earlier the supreme court had affirmed the constitutionality of the mccain-feingold law. but in a story i tell at greater length in the "the oath," the conservative majority converted a relatively minor dispute over an obscure film put up a nonprofit corporation into a complete rewriting of our campaign finance laws, based on the dual metaphors are corporations are people and money is speech. those two ideas are at the heart of citizens united and they are the story and that decision is very much the story of the 2012 presidential and perhaps even more importantly, lower ballot races. that brings us to the health care case. now, there were some so-called experts and pundits to watch the oral argument that case and said, is quite clear that what is going to be overturned because of the questions. in my defense -- [laughter] i would just like to say, whatever, okay? it was basic cable, all rights? you don't pay extra for cnn. [laughter
just pull up large boulders, you grind them up into dust and get the feingold powder. there is a lot of hills that have yet to be drilled in northern california, which is a pretty rural area. >> bill: is this all in the gold rush? i mean i know that area pretty well north of sacramento and northeast of sacramento? is that the area we are talking about? stinks yeah, right up in shasta. i mean not many people go there. also right around that area took a lot of tiny houses the epicenter >> bill: what is it tiny how tiny are we talking about? dan: it starts around 100 square feet up to about 250 square feet. >> bill: smaller than this studio. stinks smaller than most people's closets or bathrooms, but, you know, people trade in their large mcmansions for these small houses. we took a look at a few of them and what that means. some are small but people say you have to be more efficient, more creative with how you decorate them and the people who lived in them and say you can be a lot happier. >> peter: yeah. right. >> bill: seriously, do they have indoor p
to outside groups which was a consequence of the mccain- fine gold reform -- mccain- feingold reform. if you want to support governor romney or president obama, you could give $2,500 for each election. you could give the national party $38,000 a year. or you could give a super pac as much money as you want. we have contribution limits to prevent the appearance of corruption. there are rules saying they spend money on behalf of candidates but have to be independent. that independence is supposed to prevent the appearance of corruption. but this super pac's are run by close allies of the campaign. if you believe our system should regulate contributions to prevent the appearance of corruption, super pac's are a problem. if you think there is too much regulation, you would think he should restrict of regulations in the first place. it does not fit together well someone can write a check in the thousands to the president's party and then go write a check in the millions to the super pac that supports him. the same applied to mitt romney. host: we have this item. it says it is official for the fir
administration. former senator russ feingold, my predecessor as chairman of the constitution subcommittee was also an outspoken advocate of declassifying fisa court opinions and back in 2008 he held a hearing on the problem of secret law. this is an important issue and i hope that the senate will will approve the merkley amendment. i'm not aware of any substantive objections to the leahy, merkley and leahy amendments. the only concern, is that the bill will have to go back to the house for final approval but there are still four days before the end of the year when the fisa amendments act expires which is plenty of time for the house to vote on the bill the senate passed if it returns to washington. even with these amendments, i'm concerned that this reauthorization of the fisa amendments act does not include the checks and balances needed to preserve our basic freedoms and liberties. i believe we can be both safe and free. we can give the government the authority it needs to protect us from terrorism but place reasonable limits on government power to protect our constitutional rights. mr
